Bertie Wings It by Leslie Gorin, illustrated by Brendan Kearney, is a clever tale about a bird, named Bertie, who is ready to leave his nest and fly for the first time. Before he does so, these modern times insist you have the “proper” stuff and follow the advice of “experts.” Bertie needs “this” to do “that” and “that” to do “this.” It weighs him down and gets in the way. Soon he realizes that the “experts,” who can’t even fly, are not always right. Sometimes, you just gotta trust your gut and jump off the branch and fly! This is a great book for those youngsters who get lost in the preparations and lose sight of what’s important. See this book listed in our catalog
